comparison to Serato – but then Serato is still very good and getting better. Saying that – the really sick turntablists –the super super sick ones still do use real records because there is that slightly different feel. Now I don’t think I’m that good – yes I can scratch and beat juggle and all that – but the guys at the absolute peak are pulling off the most intricate, tiny hand movements and I think at that point – real records do make a massive difference. I get DJ’s coming up to me going ‘How can you scratch on Serato – it must be so annoying’ at which point I can’t help thinking that maybe I’m just not as good as them and all their ridiculously intricate hand movement stylings.

How do you feel about autosync Don’t know much about it – think it’s more a Traktor thing because there isn’t an autosync function in Serato

Well basically – you press a button and your

tracks sync into time. Do you think that removing that factor frees you up to get creative in the mix or is just a total cop out Erm…..well it sounds pretty gay, but I can imagine it can be used to do some interesting stuff with. Anything like that can always be used to do something cool with, but equally – there’s going to be loads of people who use it because they’re shit and never put the hours in.

So look – do you find that the moments on stage when you’ve stopped thinking and going through all kinds of logical processes and just lose yourself are the best Definitely – I just get really drunk so I don’t have to worry about all that logical shit

And you hold it together OK when slaughtered? Never had any complaints – but maybe I just can’t remember them in the morning
